Advice From Steve Jobs
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do." - Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs stood by this belief until the day he died. How many of us go to work each day wishing we lived a different life? The first step to designing that desired life is to determine your passion and then take calculated steps each day to live it out.
Even something as simple as spending 15 minutes a day doing one thing you're passionate about will lead you into more and more happiness, joy, creativity and success. If you love to be outside, take advantage of your lunch break and get out of the office. If you love to read, spend 15 minutes each evening before you fall asleep reading your favorite magazine, web articles or a new book. If you love the beach but don't have the chance to travel, play ocean sounds as you sleep until you're able to take a trip to the real thing, or, I don't know, splash around in your tub to ocean waves on Spotify. Whatever makes you feel closer to your desires is worth it (I won't judge).
We feel like we don't have enough time in a day to do what we have to do, let alone what we want to do, but the solution to this problem is simple. Just do, be and go...for a few minutes, every day, on a small scale to begin with.
The only way to design your happiest, most fulfilling life is by loving what you do, one moment at a time. We have to consciously make those decisions, as our souls are yearning and tugging at us every day that we don't.
